Featured Events:


An update for COVID-19:  we take concerns for COVID-19 & the impact of Coronavirus very seriously. We ask that everyone take dedicated precautions in the wake of our current situation. First & foremost, wash your hands regularly & keep active awareness of when you touch other surfaces or others, & above all avoid arbitrarily touching your face. This is the best way to reduce risk of contagion.


With regard to Metro Calendars:  until the final phase to reopen the economy has been enacted, then essentially all activity for the scene has been suspended until further notice.


We are currently tracking regional numbers as circumstances unfold. We'd like to thank everyone who made it out for our last gathering, but that will be it until this all shakes out. We wish everyone the best of health as things move forward.


Thank you, Richard A.D. & The Metro Underground.

Keep in mind that the coming days always bring new opportunities & possible changes in our schedule. So what follows is not an exhaustive list. Please check back for updates to what may be in the works. Thank you.


The Great Celtic Social (Scene Socials): Huge thanks to everyone who made it out. This was our last gathering until things settle down for COVID-19. Until then, we wish everyone good health for the months ahead.



U-Party presents: "Wet" (UndergroundParties): Due to the current status of COVID Quarantine the Underground Pool Party planned for July has been postponed until further notice. When & if we DO get it going, we have in the works an outdoor Torture Garden, indoor Playspace, Hot Tub, Clothing Optional Pool Area, Sybian, Fire Play, Shibari, Violet Wand, Hot Wax & Daggers, Hitachi, Bar & Buffet, plus some of the hottest people the scene has to offer! We'll keep you posted at things move forward.




Sunday 11th:  The DC Fetish Ball (DCFetishBall): Bringing the DC Scene to the National Stage, The Metro Underground is proud to host some of the scene's very best DJ's, models, fashion, & national talent. Providing an incredible play space in one of the city's most lavish venues, The DC Fetish Ball brings a level of twisted delight worthy of the Nation's Capitol! No doubt, THIS is a night you WON'T to miss!  Are you ready for The Ball?



Tuesday 27th - DC High Heel Race (Facebook): Hosted annually for one of DC's greatest traditions! If you've never been, it's as close as DC comes to Mardi Gras. And make no mistake, it's for everyone (THOUSANDS go to this thing). Festivities run for 4 blocks between R & Church St. along 17th NW DC. The main parade kicks off around 7pm & the race runs at 9pm (but it's really all about the parade). We meet in front of Floriana's on the corner of 17th & Q St. We're always looking for a good opportunity to bring people together, & this is an amazing event for a fun night out. So we hope to see you there!




Saturday 5th - Krampusnaught DC (MetroEvents): One of DC's greatest nights for artistic expression, talented performance, family fun, & revelry for all. Celebrating an age old tradition & benefiting an amazing cause for DC's foster children, it is one of the area's best events & a night DON'T want to miss!



Saturday 19th - Naughty or Nice Yuletide Mayhem (UndergroundParties): As the year soon draws to a close, the pivot of darkness to light brings a special meaning for the Winter Solstice. So we gather good friends old & new to share the love of the holiday season, & ask for you to join us in a little Naughty & Nice Yultide Mayhem! Our Alexandria location offers a loft area playspace w/ a separate dungeon (The Krampus Room), plus a medical playroom, pole dancing, sybian room, smoking area, hot tub, & semi-private pavilion removed from the main area. This is also a more casual smaller affair than our other events. But we still offer the perfect mix for a mid-winter gathering, so dress to impress & be ready to play - be it naughty or nice!



Thursday 24th:  X-mas Eve - Santa Takes Flight (Scene Socials): Since our inception, The Metro Underground has carried one central focus, to bring people of a like mind together & create a forum for various aspects from the scene to connect. Our Seasonal Scene Socials strive to do just that.. The holidays are a crazy time. But our X-mas Eve gathering has seriously grown over the years & offers a perfect respit from Yuletide mayhem. It’s the perfect chance to gather our scene-based family & truly connect over drinks, good food, & good conversation. So if you don’t have plans (or might want to escape the plans you have), then please join us at the Old Ebbitt Grill for a chance to unwind & connect before the holiday mayhem takes hold.


May (2021):


Memorial Day Weekend (2021) - Fetish Factory Road Trip (FetishFactory): Due to COVID Quarantine, the Fetish Factory Anniversary Weekend has been postponed until Memorial Day 2021.


Offering  5 Days, 9 Parties, for a full hotel takeover! The Metro Underground takes to the road for an event of epic proportion! We're on our way to Ft. Lauderdale for the Fetish Factory 25th Anniversary Weekend (possibly the biggest, baddest, & most amazing fetish event in North America). The Metro & Friends will be there in force as DC travels to Florida for an unbelievable time not to be missed! We welcome you to join us...
